F.Y.I If you receive an email titled "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus." DO NOT
OPEN IT. It will erase everything on your hard drive. This info. was
announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL states that this is a very
dangerous virus, much worse than "Melissa," and that there is no remedy for
it at this time.
Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the format function from
Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard
drive. It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer. It destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers.
This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.
Pass this warning along to everyone in your address book and your online
friends. Mary S.
